House Inspection Checklist

Buying a home? The process can be stressful.

A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect.  You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. This often
includes a written report, a checklist, photographs, and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this, in addition to what you notice yourself, makes the
experience even more overwhelming.

What should you do? Relax.

Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies for various systems and components, and minor imperfections. These are useful to know about.  However, the issues that really matter are deemed major defects and/or safety hazards. Below are some examples of such defects that we may find at your
inspected property. Other examples provided may be deemed safety issues that may not be immediately rectified by the seller prior to your purchase, although
consideration should be made to address these issues once you have moved in to ensure your new property is a safe & structurally sound place to live.
